FOUR! Andile Phehlukwayo to Hardik Pandya. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past deep point for 4 runs. Crashed away square and that's the last four runs India required. A comfortable run chase spearheaded by Rohit Sharma after an impressive bowling performance from Bumrah and Chahal. India get their World Cup campaign off to a winning start but it's three losses in a row for South Africa, they were playing catch up in this game right from the very start. That's it from the Hampshire Bowl, see you next time.

OUT! Caught & Bowled. Chris Morris to MS Dhoni. Back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled back to bowler, by Morris. That's gone straight up, Morris calls for it early. He gets underneath it and does well to take the catch as he was falling over the stumps at the bowler's end as he did so. He's deserved that wicket, Dhoni perishes looking for a big shot late in the day.

Kagiso Rabada to MS Dhoni. Slower length ball, outside off stump down the track cutting, top edge in the air uncontrolled to point for 1 run, fielded by Duminy. Another ball lands safe after Rabada forces an error. How has he only taken two wickets today?

.
Kagiso Rabada to Rohit Sharma. Slower ball short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to cover for no runs, dropped catch by Miller. Rabada takes the pace off and deceives Rohit. He's completely mis-timed his pull shot and plopped the ball gently up in the air. David Miller proceeds to drop one of the easiest catches I've ever seen go down in international cricket. That sums up South Africa in this tournament so far.

Runs : 0 Bowler: Bhuvneshwar Kumar Wickets : 2
49.6
W
OUT! Caught. Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Imran Tahir. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump backing away pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to extra cover, by Jadhav. Plopped up in the air and Bhuvneshwar has two wickets in his final over. South Africa have been on the back foot throughout this entire innings. Bumrah was fantastic with the new ball and Chahal did really well in the middle of the innings, his drift in particular deceiving the South African batsmen. Thanks to the work of Morris and Rabada South Africa do at least have a score to bowl at but it would take an incredible performance to bowl India out for less than 227.
49.2
W
OUT! Caught. Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Chris Morris. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long off, by Kohli. Slow and wide once again from Bhuvi who is nailing that line just inside the wide line. Morris tried reaching for it but couldn't get hold of it and Kohli took the catch running in from long off.

SIX! Yuzvendra Chahal to Chris Morris. Leg spinner back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Morris sees another opportunity to get back and pull and he does so with real power. He hit that ball hard and flat and it carried all the way just over a long part of the ground.

41.1
6
SIX! Yuzvendra Chahal to Chris Morris. Slider, on the back foot pulling, in the air under control over deep square leg for 6 runs. By far the worst ball Chahal has bowled today, a real drag down and Morris gets full value, pulling the ball into the stands.
In over# 40
Runs : 0 Bowler: Yuzvendra Chahal Wickets : 1
39.3
W
OUT! Stumped. Yuzvendra Chahal to Andile Phehlukwayo. Leg spinner length ball, down leg side down the track Slog, missed to wicketkeeper, by Dhoni. One of the easiest stumpings Dhoni has ever had. Phehlukwayo all of a sudden was going after everything. He came running miles down the wicket and Chahal was crafty enough to get it through him. Dhoni actually spilt the ball at first but caught the rebound and then broke the the bails.
In over# 39

38.2
6
SIX! Kuldeep Yadav to Andile Phehlukwayo. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, to leg on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control for 6 runs. A flighted delivery is launched over the ropes, first maximum for South Africa and a sign that Phehlukwayo wants to lift the tempo.
In over# 36

W
OUT! Caught & Bowled. Yuzvendra Chahal to David Miller. Leg spinner half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, in the air uncontrolled to silly mid on, by Chahal. Chahal back into the attack and he strikes straight away. Tossed up with men back down the ground and Miller struck it firmly but straight back at Chahal. It was a fairly comfortable return catch and South Africa lose their sixth wicket.
In over# 23
Runs : 0 Bowler: Kuldeep Yadav Wickets : 1
22.6
W
OUT! L.B.W. Kuldeep Yadav to JP Duminy. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, middle stump on the back foot defending, hit pad to. That looks dead, Duminy went back and missed it and that's hitting nothing except leg stump. It looks like Miller talked him into a review, not because he thought it wasn't out but because South Africa don't have any real batsmen left. There is no miracle to save Duminy though. He was well back looking to defend, the ball was full, it pitched on middle and was hitting leg stump. South Africa in all sorts of trouble.
In over# 20
Runs : 0 Bowler: Yuzvendra Chahal Wickets : 2
19.6
W
OUT! Bowled. Yuzvendra Chahal to Faf du Plessis. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to. Through the gate and into the stumps. A massive blow for South Africa, two in the over for Chahal and India are right back in the driving seat again. Chahal has been tricky to read, some balls gripping and turning and others skidding through a bit quicker. This was one of the latter, it drifted in sharply and hurried on towards the stumps, flicking the front pad on the way.
19.1
W
OUT! Bowled. Yuzvendra Chahal to Rassie van der Dussen. Leg spinner length ball, to leg on the front foot reverse sweeping, missed to. Chahal has done him, that's gone behind van der Dussen and turned and hit middle stump. It was a pre-meditated reverse sweep but the ball wasn't the right line for the shot. Not a pretty end for van der Dussen, I think he would have been stumped anyway had the ball not bowled him.
In over# 6
Runs : 0 Bowler: Jasprit Bumrah Wickets : 1
5.5
W
OUT! Caught. Jasprit Bumrah to Quinton de Kock. Length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to third slip, by Kohli. Edged and this time it goes to hand. Kohli had stationed himself at third slip and that ball flew above his head. Slightly fuller from Bumrah and he drew de Kock into a big drive, hence why the ball went so quickly towards the slips. Kohli stuck up two hands and caught the ball to give Bumrah and India a second wicket.
In over# 4
Runs : 0 Bowler: Jasprit Bumrah Wickets : 1

W
OUT! Caught. Jasprit Bumrah to Hashim Amla. Seaming away back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to second slip, by Sharma. That's a beauty from Bumrah and it's done for Hashim Amla. He's hitting the pitch at speed and he manages to get one to move away from the right-hander which surprises Amla. The ball takes the edge high on the bat and Rohit Sharma takes a safe catch at second slip. What a start for India.

OUT! Caught & Bowled. Chris Morris to MS Dhoni. Back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled back to bowler, by Morris. That's gone straight up, Morris calls for it early. He gets underneath it and does well to take the catch as he was falling over the stumps at the bowler's end as he did so. He's deserved that wicket, Dhoni perishes looking for a big shot late in the day.

W
OUT! Caught. Kagiso Rabada to Lokesh Rahul. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed to mid off, by du Plessis. There was some discussion before the beginning of the over as to who to bowl but the captain stuck with Rabada and he's picked up another wicket. I'm not quite sure what Rahul was doing there, it wasn't a slower delivery he was just far too early on it and chipped up the simplest of catches to mid-off. Here comes Dhoni.
In over# 23
Runs : 6 Bowler: Tabraiz Shamsi Wickets : 0
22.2
6
SIX! Tabraiz Shamsi to Rohit Sharma. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, middle stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Good use of the feet and an even better connection with the cricket ball. That's a big hit from Rohit, he'd had enough of just playing Shamsi from the crease.
In over# 16
Runs : 0 Bowler: Andile Phehlukwayo Wickets : 1
15.3
W
OUT! Caught. Andile Phehlukwayo to Virat Kohli. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to first slip, by de Kock. What a catch by Quinton de Kock and Kohli is gone. He wanted to run this ball towards third man and got a fair amount of bat on it but de Kock leapt threw the air and took the ball in the webbing of his glove. Phehlukwayo finds a wicket for South Africa again and that might just get their tails up.
In over# 8

6
SIX! Kagiso Rabada to Rohit Sharma. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep backward square leg for 6 runs. Pulled away off the hip and it goes all the way for six with Rabada's pace. That is an area of strength for Rohit.

W
OUT! Caught. Kagiso Rabada to Shikhar Dhawan. Seaming away back of a length, to leg on the back foot pushing, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to wicketkeeper, by de Kock. That's a nick and that's out, Rabada is pumped up. Another good delivery, hitting the surface hard and Dhawan was pushing at it just outside off. He got a faint edge and it was an easy catch for de Kock. No less than Rabada deserved.
